A Historical Film Marker
11 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The copy of the film I have of this movie is badly damaged. The lighting is bad - that maybe due the the film's aging process (I've seen many other films that have this problem from this time era and earlier). This film would have to be restored to appreciate, just like other films that have not been restored.

From what we see, there are some really cute dance numbers, some comedy, and a mixed up drama mystery that does not make sense but would I'm sure if the missing pieces of the film were found. It's hard to make a fair judgment on a film like this as to how good or bad the story really is.

But if you are studying the history of film making this is a neat piece of historical footage from the 1930s. I would recommend trying to find a restored copy of this film or someone to restore it for you to watch.

2/10
